You can’t avoid life challenges.
In fact, life as a leader is challenging.
There are times I want to wimp out & not face the challenges.
So I think it’s vital then to know that there is a purpose behind any challenge. Ultimately I think challenges are in our lives to improve both us & our understanding of life, people & Christ.
Here’s some of my current challenges:
Keeping fit – harder to do as you get older, I’d rather watch the footy than work up a sweat
Getting out to take pictures – seriously! Positive addictions are important for emotional health so have to make sure I keep clicking
Leading a church in a unchurched culture – how do we connect to people who don’t show any interest in church?
Keeping up – with people, technology, God!
Family living interstate – our daughter & her hubby live in Brisbane – not ideal for mum & dad!
Writing a book – 60% of a book written is not a good feeling. Working title is Pain Relief & has come together quickly but is currently gathering dust.
